reviews Peaceful Harbour by Chris Timson & Anne Gregson

Chris Timson & Anne Gregson specialise in close harmony singing and their voices blend well.  There are seven traditional English and American tracks and fourteen contemporary (eleven by Gregson herself) on this cd.  I especially liked the acappella American songs Betty Anne, Another Year and Crawdad Song.  Gregson sets sound lyrics to easily remembered tunes and I can imagine All in Harmony, This Time Again (overdubbed to allow 6 part harmonies) and the title track (two voices, two concertinas, beautifully arranged) becoming club standards.  I could have done without yet another version of The World Turned Upside Down, however this is more than counterbalanced by John Poles excellent Punch & Judy.  Worth a listen.
